for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you have just one clinic and that is under threat of being closed for the next few weeks. >> michael: that clinic is staffed by a doctor who flies in to work there. it just seems that it's so arcane, the laws that they have there. it doesn't mean that abortion is going to go away. it means that women will leave that state and have an abortion in another state. you spoke with a woman who wanted an abortion. i want to listen to what she had to say. >> so what brings you today? >> well, really it's not a good thing. i have two 11-year-olds who are nine months apart. i have a 7-month-old. my oldest are having to go without. it's really

rights leader medger everies in jackson mississippi, in front of his wife and children, by a back-shooting coward by the name of byron beckwith. she pursued the case for 30 years and got a brave attorney to take her case. it was made into movie called " "ghosts of mississippi." she has been a stalwart, stubborn, wonderful lady who dedicated herself to getting justice for her husband and finally got it. and remarkably this is the first time a non-clergymen or non-clergy person has been allowed to give the invocation at a presidential inaugural. i think it's terrific. i think it to put her in the spotlight is a great thing. >> jennifer: well, i think it is a great symbol as well, and i appreciate, as always, your insights, and you are one of our favorite columnists, so thank you, charlie for sharing with us. charlie pierce of "esquire" magazine. health insurance companies were given an inch. now they're taking a whole yard. they just cannot seem to help themselves. we'll hear about that. later, just how unpopular is congress these days? would you believe that cockroaches are more ap
